A quiet haven with the sweetest staff”

I originally meant to stay here two nights and ended up staying for a week! This hostel is an amazing value for your money. Free breakfast every morning is included, and the wifi never failed me like it has at other hostels in the past. There’s not much to do in the area unless you Grab out of the way, but there are a handful of restaurants nearby as well as a convenience store, and Larkin Sentral bus terminal is a short walk away. The staff are so sweet and friendly and on Chinese New Year they provided the guests with a delicious feast! I really had the opportunity to rest and recharge so I could continue on to my next destination. If I am ever in JB again you can bet I’ll come here. Thank you so much for such a great stay!

Pros: located in Dataran Larkin market/shop area on 2nd floor of coin laundry, just 7min walk across Larkin sentral bus station. Easy bus access to Singapore, and cities in Malaysia peninsular. Female dorm equipped with small locker and power socket. They provide blanket, soap and simple breakfast. Cons : shaky bunk bed, no curtain for privacy, a shoe rack near front door would be very nice to keep front door tidy

It's just 1min walk from Larkin Bus Terminal. The bed was clean, but only 1 washing basin for the entire floor. The staff was very nice and gave me some suggestion about where to go in Johor Bahru (but just for the record, it's not safe to go to Senibong at night by bus)

Clean, comfortable, acceptable.”

Only 5 mins walk from Larkin bus terminal so perfect to catch a bus in the morning. (Only stayed 1 night so unsure how close it is to Johor attractions.) Bed was clean and comfortable, no window in room but good AC. Shared toilets and showers. On the second floor shower pressure is so poor it's difficult to wash, I used the downstairs ones instead. Good security and key card entry system. Breakfast was just toast with spreads that seemed to have been sat out in the heat for days. Not great. But free water refills, tea and coffee.

Just refreshing enough to crash between bus trips”

I was a bit concerned that I could not locate the hostel easily when arriving on a late bus to JB Larkin terminal. However once I arrived, staff were most welcoming, facilities were adequate and bedroom was clean and restful. I availed myself of the breakfast and low-cost printing facilities. The only suggestion I would make is to forewarn those with cat allergies that there are a few felines for company who also like to stay at the hostel. Pack some antihistaimes ;)

Bear in mind its a hostel not a hotel. You get what you pay. The location were good near to Larkin sentral. If youre a backpacker person. Its a good spot for you. If youre looking for a place of comfort, I assure you to find other hotels. The toilet is outside of the room. Overall its ideal place for cheapskate people who love to travel.
